Recommended for you Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppProvidenciales, 24 Mar 2015 – Government has under spent by a reported $15.8 million dollars according to the Opposition Leader; who announced this during her contribution on the Budget Debate which is ongoing in the House of Assembly and only some of that money will roll over into the new fiscal year. During a press conference held at the Providenciales International Airport in late January, Finance Minister Washington Misick said $6 million dollars will be rolled over to support policy commitments and that it will not go to debt reduction. The Minister at the time said the late start to the financial year delayed opportunity to spend on many projects and initiatives. Hon Washington Misick will have an opportunity for rebuttal where he can clarify if truly $9 million dollars in unspent government money from last fiscal year will actually go into the sinking fund. After three quarters of the 2014/2015 fiscal year, the country was operating in a $60.6 million surplus.

It’s political party convention time and that means each party will be releasing its party platform. The GOP released its platform on Monday evening, and below is a quick review on some of the themes struck in the Agriculture, Energy, and Environment section. The American Soybean Association (ASA) will do a similar review when the Democrats release their platform next week.The full Republican platform document can be found at the link below. The Agriculture, Energy, and Environment section is on pages 17-22.2016 Republican Party PlatformNotable agriculture provisions in the platform include:Trade – The platform includes language on the importance of agricultural trade, expanded agricultural exports, and science-based standards for food and agriculture. The platform also includes language opposing approval of the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) during the lame-duck session of Congress.Government Regulation – The platform includes language expressing concerns about overregulation and how it impacts competitiveness. Specifically, the platform notes opposition to WOTUS, opposition to policies pushed by special interests seeking to stop or make more expensive the production of meat, impacts of Endangered Species Act designations, and a proposal to convert EPA into a bipartisan commission.Conservation – The platform acknowledges that farmers are good stewards of the land, and recognizes the benefits of voluntary conservation programs and modern farming practices in achieving conservation goals.Ag Data – The platform includes language supporting the privacy and security of farmer-owned data.Biofuels – The platform includes only a passing reference to private investment in biofuels, with no specific mention of RFS or biodiesel. The platform notes an “all-of-the-above” energy strategy, but also calls for the elimination of subsidies for energy sources.GMO labeling – The platform notes the GOP’s opposition to mandatory GMO labeling.Crop Insurance & Farm Income Safety Net – The platform includes only ambiguous language on the government’s role (or lack thereof) in helping farmers to manage risk.Nutrition Programs – The platform includes language clearly calling for the separation of the nutrition title from the next farm bill, as well as for separating SNAP administration from USDA.Again, we will issue a similar document following the release of the Democratic platform next week. As you can see, there are elements of the GOP platform with which ASA policy aligns and those with which it doesn’t. This will almost assuredly be the case with the Democratic platform as well. Given that, we believe there is very little to be gained from any public stance on either document. If you do receive press inquiries, however, please let us know and we’re happy to assist in the preparation of messaging.
The developer of a proposed wind farm on Maryland’s Eastern Shore said it was placing the project in “indefinite suspension” after it could not overcome concerns by the state’s congressional delegation that the project would interfere with a radar system at Naval Air Station Patuxent River.The Great Bay Wind project, located across the Chesapeake Bay from the air station, had survived a move last year by Maryland lawmakers to delay its construction until MIT’s Lincoln Laboratory could evaluate ways to mitigate the turbines’ impact on the radar system after then- Gov. Martin O’Malley (D) vetoed the bill.In response, however, Sen. Barbara Mikulski (D-Md.) — who was chairwoman of the Appropriations Committee — added language to the committee report of the fiscal 2015 defense spending bill barring the Navy from reaching a deal with Pioneer Green Energy to turn off the turbines during radar testing at Pax River until MIT completes its study. The study is scheduled to be finished by the end of the year.Adam Cohen, vice president of the developer, cited the provision inserted by Mikulski in a March 20 letter informing Somerset County that Pioneer would not be requesting a permit for the project’s construction “at the current time or in the foreseeable future.” The Mikulski language “placed the entire Great Bay Wind investment and business into a state of uncertainty,” Cohen said.The Pentagon placed another hurdle in front of the project in October when it formally objected to the wind farm because of its potential to interfere with the stealth radar system at Pax River.Advocates of the air station applauded the news of Pioneer’s decision, reported the Maryland Gazette.It’s a “big win for St. Mary’s and another job creation opportunity for the Eastern Shore,” St. Mary’s County Commissioner Tom Jarboe (R) said in reference to a plan by a Pioneer affiliate to develop an unrelated solar project in Somerset County.

The state has asked a former Corrections head to help with the transition in the department’s leadership after Gov. Bill Walker asked that he resign as commissioner.Walker spokeswoman Katie Marquette said Ron Taylor was asked last month to work for up to 90 days in a special project position at the same salary level as commissioner.She said Taylor can provide historical context and insight on department logistics to the acting commissioner and others.Asked if this was typical, Marquette called this a unique circumstance and said Walker felt it was important to ensure a smooth transition.An administrative review of the department following the deaths of several inmates found outdated policies and cases of lax or informal consequences for apparent employee misconduct.Walker appointed Taylor commissioner in January.
The Trans-Alaska Pipeline runs alongside the Dalton Highway near the Toolik Field Station on June 9, 2017, in the North Slope Borough. (Photo by Rashah McChesney/Alaska’s Energy Desk)The operator of the trans-Alaska pipeline is cutting its staff by about 10 percent, or roughly 130 jobs.Listen nowThat’s according to a letter Alyeska Pipeline Service Company president Tom Barrett sent to state leaders Tuesday.The pipeline system moves almost $40 million of oil every day.Alyeska spokeswoman Michelle Egan says the company faces twin pressures. On one hand, it’s the only way to ship oil off the North Slope. That means Alyeska can’t cut corners and risk a spill or a shutdown of the pipeline, Egan said. (The company calls it TAPS, for “Trans-Alaska Pipeline System.”)“Everyone who works here understands that Alaska, its economy, its oil industry is dependent upon TAPS operating. And that operation depends on us being safe and environmentally responsible,” Egan said.At the same time, Egan added, the pipeline has to be financially sustainable.“And so we’re looking at ways to modernize the way we do things and find efficiencies,” Egan said.In his letter to state leaders, Barrett said Alyeska is reorganizing to streamline its maintenance work, centralize its emergency response, and add new technology.Barrett said employees at all levels of the organization will be affected. That includes people in Anchorage, Fairbanks, Valdez and field sites.Alyeska’s 1,300 workers include about 750 employees and 550 contractors, according to Egan.It’s owned by four different oil companies, including three of Alaska’s biggest: BP, ExxonMobil and ConocoPhillips. Unocal Pipeline Co. owns slightly less than 1.5 percent.Alyeska is responsible for moving oil to Valdez, then helping to make sure tankers safely carry it from there out of Prince William Sound, according to Egan.The Prince William Sound Regional Citizens’ Advisory Council was created after the Exxon Valdez oil spill. It helps monitor Alyeska’s operations in Valdez and Prince William Sound. Spokeswoman Brooke Taylor said the council learned about the reorganization Wednesday, and wants to know more.“The council was put in place to ensure complacency did not creep into the system, because it was complacency that led to the Valdez oil spill,” Taylor said. “So any time you see a restructuring and reductions in workforce, it could be fine. But it’s something the council takes very seriously and will want to get a lot more information on.”Barrett said employees and contractors affected by the cuts will be notified by early November.
Nyong’o, 32, will make her New York stage debut in the production, which is also the play’s NYC premiere.Eclipsed is set during the Liberian Civil War and follows the captive wives of a rebel officer. “Danai Gurira has written a brilliant play, ripped from the headlines, that looks at the terrible conflicts in post-colonial Africa with an eye that is both incisive and deeply compassionate,” Public Theater artistic director Oskar Eustis said in a statement.“A feminist reading of the Liberian Civil War, a war that was ended by women, Eclipsed is both heart-breaking and profoundly life-affirming. We are delighted to welcome Lupita Nyong’o to The Public in this vitally important play,” the statement added.

GAYSTARNEWS- The gay agenda is finally revealed and it’s beautiful At the time, I was teaching law at a local university. And one of my students proceeded to post my teaching schedule and a description of the car I drove as a comment to the online article. I was devastated and felt both betrayed and scared. I thought that I could not return to teach at that university for the upcoming semester, because my safety was so compromised.Of course, I had no faith in the Jamaican police. After all, they had previously ignored my other requests for help in investigating death threats associated with my activism for LGBTI human rights on the island.10 years hard labour for being gay in JamaicaAlthough most of my students had probably suspected that I was gay, I had never confirmed their suspicions. Among other things, Jamaica criminalizes all forms of male-sex intimacy.The penalties are severe. They start with a maximum sentence of 10 years at hard labour. And once released, the persecution continues. You are required to register as a sex offender and always carry a pass. If you do not, you face a JA$1million ($7,500 €6,420) fine plus up to a year imprisonment for each offence of not having their pass.Around the same time, fear-mongering right-wing Christian extremists sponsored a constitutional amendment banning same-sex marriage. During that debate, a Canadian law lecturer testified before Jamaica’s Parliament about the supposed ‘threat’ that same-sex marriage posed to society, based on the experience of marriage-equality in Canada.I was devastated to have to leave my job teaching law, which I thoroughly enjoyed. Even more, I feared that by fleeing I had let the homophobic bigots win.I was largely a prisoner while I was on the islandI was also teaching discrimination law to the President of Jamaica’s Senate. And I wanted to ensure that at least one of our senior politicians knew the truth about discrimination faced by the country’s LGBTI community.So, after a month’s absence, I decided to fly to Jamaica every week from Toronto to continue teaching my courses for the rest of the semester. My husband strenuously objected. But as a former Toronto Police officer he helped me devise a security protocol to protect myself. It meant I was largely a prisoner while I was on the island, but it worked – I stayed safe.At the end of the semester I relocated permanently to Canada and I was soon teaching law at another university. At that institution I had none of the restrictions that plagued me in Jamaica about expressing my sexuality or discussing my husband, who also taught at the university. And I revelled in this new sense of freedom.I was the first gay black teacher he had encounteredHowever, soon after I begun teaching I noticed a student (who I soon discovered was originally from Trinidad) staring sternly at me in class. He rarely smiled, and I thought my open discussions of my sexuality offended him.Up until April of this year Trinidad was one of the last remaining countries in the western hemisphere that criminalized same-sex intimacy. Moreover, anti-gay religious sentiment was popular among Trinidadians.But this student’s stares did not deter me. After all, I knew that in Canada the law protected from harassment.It turns out that I could not have been more wrong about this Trinidadian-Canadian student. At the end of the semester he handed me a note. In it, he confided that he was himself gay, and that I was the first gay black teacher that he had encountered. He said my example had also inspired him to come out to his family and friends. His disclosure left me speechless and humbled and we eventually became Facebook friends.‘I felt like I would be alone if I came out’He recently sent me another note that was again very moving:Hi Maurice, I hope that you and Professor Decker [my husband] are doing well.Just wanted to give you a quick reminder that people all over the world are inspired by the work that you do. When it gets difficult, and I’m sure it does, remember that you offer enough light to lead many of us out of the darkness.I didn’t come out till I was 30. A Conservative Baptist family and straight homophobic friends made it very difficult for me. I felt like I would be alone in the world if I did.When I walked into the first class that I had the privilege of being taught by you in my first year of university I saw someone that I wanted to be like. A strong, well educated, well spoken, funny, gay black man. You gave me that inspiration and courage that I needed to send out an email to my friends and family a few weeks later.Please continue to do what you do. We need you more than you know.The sodomy law in Jamaica drives HIV ratesI have since left that university and now work full-time with the Canadian HIV/AIDS Legal Network. There I lead the organization’s efforts challenging anti-gay laws and policies in the Caribbean. These archaic British colonially-imposed statutes contribute to the region having the second-highest HIV prevalence rate worldwide after sub-Saharan Africa.Jamaican men who have sex with men (MSM) also have the highest HIV prevalence rate in the western hemisphere, if not the world, 33%. The country’s draconian anti-sodomy law and the homophobia it engenders drives MSM underground, away from effective HIV prevention interventions. Initially I represented a claimant in a legal challenge to Jamaica’s anti-sodomy law. But when he dropped the case because of death threats that he and his family received, I decided to take his place. I opted to use my privilege of being able to leave Jamaica to ensure that this critical matter did not die.The case is before the country’s Court of Appeal and awaiting a judgment (due today, 31 July) on whether the country’s Public Defender can join in supporting my claim. Ten anti-gay religious groups gained permission to be in the case to oppose me.Fighting anti-gay laws around the CaribbeanIn addition, I am working with local partners in other Caribbean countries to challenge similar anti-sodomy laws. For example, on 6 June we filed a case in Barbados. There, the anti-sodomy law is the worst in the western hemisphere, with life imprisonment.We are also sponsoring Caribbean Pride events, we train police in LGBTI sensitivity. And we even try to get religious groups talking about inclusion. These are among various other initiatives we use to change hearts and minds, as well as anti-gay laws. All this work will require an investment of significant resources to help the Caribbean jettison its largely imported legacy of homophobia. We have therefore launched a ‘Caribbean Can Rainbow Fund’ so that global allies can join us in this incredibly important work.As my Trinidadian-Canadian student taught me, the Caribbean LGBTI liberation work will have positive ripple effects even in the global north because: ‘Until we are all free, we are none of us free.’Gay Star News is helping Maurice Tomlinson’s work by supporting Barbados Pride and Montego Bay Pride in Jamaica.Also on Gay Star NewsJamaica rules gay teens can live in the sewer In 2012 I was forced to flee my native Jamaica for my husband’s country of Canada.It was all triggered when a Jamaican newspaper published an article about my marriage.

Hundreds of thousands of young Indians are nervously exploring online dating apps, breaking with India’s centuries-old traditions governing marriage and social conduct. The dating app market has exploded in recent years, with more than a dozen companies operating in the country and more than a million smartphone users who have downloaded at least one of them. (AP Photo/Tsering Topgyal) Mesa family survives lightning strike to home Mendiratta is one of hundreds of thousands of young Indians nervously exploring online dating apps — and breaking with India’s centuries-old traditions governing marriage and social conduct. The dating app market has exploded in recent years, with more than a dozen companies operating in India and more than a million smartphone users who have downloaded at least one of them.The success of social dating apps may be somewhat surprising in India, a deeply conservative country where arranged marriage is still the norm and marrying outside of one’s religious or ethnic community is often frowned upon. But youths raised during an era of economic growth and modernization are eagerly embracing Western ideas, and increasingly willing to risk scandal to do so.“In India, you need to have a reference to speak with anyone,” Sagar Datta, a 24-year-old interior designer who has met at least 20 people, both men and women, he was introduced to through an app. “I never imagined strangers would be open to meeting strangers, just by looking at pictures of each other.”App developers are seizing on what they see as enormous potential in India, where half of the 1.2 billion population is younger than 25 and smartphone sales are projected to surge 67 percent this year alone. Indian companies are coming up with home-grown dating apps to compete with imports like Los Angeles-based Tinder. They even have the quirky names down: Woo, Thrill, TrulyMadly, HitchUp and DesiCrush, to name a few. Comments Share Whitney Wolfe, who co-founded Tinder before leaving to launch the app Bumble, said designing platforms that give women more control work in any country, not just India, where men traditionally take the lead.“In the current landscape, women want to make the first move” but don’t because they’re afraid of what society will think, she said, explaining why Bumble allows only women to send a first message. The formula, she said, reduces the fear of rejection for men and removes the idea of a woman being “desperate.”Some young Indian women say they’ve been thrilled by the chance to chat with men they might not meet through family functions or in the office. Others relish the attention they receive.“It just gives you so much control,” said Anandita Malhotra, a 19-year-old student at an all-girl’s college. “I’d be showered with compliments from 10 different guys every time I logged on. It made me feel extremely good about myself.”While Malhotra and many others may be dabbling in dating through the social apps, they’re not all quite ready to give up on traditions like letting their parents chose their spouse. But because dating is still widely seen as a social taboo in India, “it is very difficult to get girls in India to start using a dating app,” said Sachin Bhatia, co-founder of India’s TrulyMadly.Success also requires navigating extra security concerns, developers said. India has been roiled in recent years by a series of high-profile cases of gang rape and violence against women, leading to front-page headlines and stricter laws on women’s safety.“We realized verification, security and privacy are very important” to women, Bhatia said. “That’s what brings women to the app. They like to join an app where they can be sure that you will not have married men, stalkers or folks like that.”His company includes special features to reassure women the company has their best interests in mind. “Even a small incident will reflect badly on our app.”Developers said they were being particularly cautious after another app-based company, taxi service Uber, became embroiled in controversy in December and lost its license to operate in the Indian capital after one of its Delhi drivers was accused of raping a 26-year-old passenger. NEW DELHI (AP) — Aditi Mendiratta’s biggest worry as she’s swiping left and right is hiding the smartphone notifications that read “Congratulations! You have a new match” from her parents.“They wouldn’t be cool with it,” the 20-year-old journalism student said, flipping her long black hair out of her face. “I’d probably be lectured a zillion times about how irresponsible I am.” Marketing to women means not just giving them more control over whom they connect with, but also carefully controlling which men are being featured and offering reassurance that the men are legitimate.To do so, TrulyMadly encourages men to upload copies of their passports or other government-issued IDs, or to verify their phone numbers — all measures that might raise red flags over privacy in the West. It forbids risque photos, Bhatia said, and men who are married or post pictures of themselves smoking or holding a beer bottle are rejected outright. They’ll even decide if a man looks desirable enough. If they’re wearing an odd tank-top, or look thuggish, they’re out. In total, a quarter of users who try to register on TrulyMadly are denied, Bhatia said.Still, 65 percent of its users are men.The app Thrill sidelines up to 35 percent of male users, without telling them, to a so-called “phantom zone” where they can still log on and view others’ profiles, but can’t make contact and are invisible to other users.“It keeps out a lot of the riff-raff, to put it simply,” said co-founder Josh Israel, a New Jersey native now living in New Delhi. 5 people who need to visit the Ultrastar Multi-tainment Center How do cataracts affect your vision?
Thomas Cook hand luggage allowance: weight, size and fees UPDATE:Thomas Cook’s hand luggage policy has been impacted by the UK Government’s ban on laptops and tablets in cabins, on direct flights to the UK from Turkey, Lebanon, Jordan, Egypt, Tunisia and Saudi Arabia. Full details here.So, how can you make the most of the luggage restrictions, and avoid extra fees when flying Thomas Cook? Here are seven money-saving top tips:1. Pack hand luggage wiselyMake the most of the Gate Bag rule. In days gone by, passengers would have had to fit their travel documents, in-flight reading material and on-board snacks all in one cabin bag. Now, Thomas Cook allows for one additional item to be taken on board as well – that means a little more room in your cabin bag – which may in turn mean no hold bag is necessary. Additional items permitted are:• One laptop• One overcoat or one blanket• One small ladies handbag, one small wrist-bag or one small bag with shoulder strap• One umbrella• One small camera and/or one binocular• Assisted devices of persons with disabilities• Reading material• Duty free items• Infants food Thomas Cook hold baggage sizeThomas Cook hold luggage weight allowanceNumber of hold bags allowedCost of Thomas Cook hold luggage 55x40x20cm maximum cabin baggage dimensions6kg maximum weightOne hand luggage bag per passenger, plus one small bag£50-£70 depending on the route ReturnOne wayMulti-cityFromAdd nearby airports ToAdd nearby airportsDepart14/08/2019Return21/08/2019Cabin Class & Travellers1 adult, EconomyDirect flights onlySearch flights Map 6. Brides and grooms: celebrate your nuptials with extra baggage allowanceIf you have booked a Thomas Cook wedding package and are flying with Thomas Cook Airlines, then the hand baggage allowance is 11kgs per person (for the wedding couple only). That’s cause to celebrate, no? Any additional items required by the Bride and/or Groom can be taken as hand baggage. Thomas Cook recommend that important wedding accessories are stored in hand luggage – so start learning how to correctly fold that veil.Stay travel savvy with more stress-saving tips: There are no restrictions on items of hold luggage per passengerFirst bag £23-£25Additional bags £15-£85These fees can vary depending on the route you’re flying 3. Check the baggage restrictions for your specific flightBaggage restrictions actually differ greatly depending on where you’re flying to. For instance, standard Thomas Cook package holidays come with 15kgs weight allowance in the hold, but if you opt for the signature option, you’re allowed 20kgs per person. If you’re flying long haul, there’s a 20kg limit. But, if you’re flying long haul USA, it’s 23kg. That extra kg or two can make all the difference – (yes, you should bring that extra pair of shoes). Thomas Cook hold luggage allowance: weight, size and fees 5. Check the banned items listAs with many airlines, Thomas Cook provides a list of items you can’t take on board. Liquids under 100ml are prohibited in the cabin, as are dangerous objects (knives, razors, screwdrivers etc), and flammables. Large laptops and electrical equipment are permitted but must be screened separately. The same goes for medicine and baby food. Dangerous articles such as gas cylinders, firearms and needles are not permitted in the hold. Check the full list of luggage restrictions on the airport website before you arrive, so you don’t get held up at security. Or, check out our list of commonly banned items here. 2.

MONTREAL — A prestigious Quebec literary prize has decided to abandon a sponsorship from Amazon after writers nominated for the award denounced the online giant’s “inhuman methods.”Organizers of the Prix litteraire des collegiens announced Monday the next edition of the prize will go ahead with funding from a foundation as they try to find a new sponsor.The prize was suspended last month shortly after Amazon was announced as the main sponsor. Critics blamed the online retailer for hastening the demise of local bookstores and said it had no business associating with the award.Claude Bourgie Bovet, co-founder of the prize, said in an interview that organizers “will work to try to do what we had done with Amazon, that is to find a partner able to offer money and support to develop the prize and ensure its longevity.”Amazon said the controversy will not stop it from getting involved in literary prizes.“We have a long-standing track record of supporting Canadian authors and readers and will continue to explore ways to recognize writers and support literature in Quebec and across Canada,” the company said in a statement.It noted that it is already the main sponsor of the Amazon Canada First Novel Award, which The Walrus magazine produces on the online retailer’s behalf, and contributes to other initiatives promoting literature.There are 1.6 million French-language titles for sale on Amazon.ca, including the five books nominated this year for the Prix litteraire des collegiens.The finalists for the 2019 edition of the prize were among the most vocal critics of Amazon Canada’s involvement.In a joint letter published in Le Devoir, Karoline Georges, Kevin Lambert, Jean-Christophe Rehel, Lula Carballo and Dominique Fortier denounced what they called Amazon’s “extreme competition” and its detrimental effect on small booksellers.“Must we recall the precariousness of the book trade and literary publishing?” they asked. “Must we bring up the inhuman methods of this online selling giant, which constitutes a peril for small retailers and cultural sites?”Bourgie Bovet had argued that the sponsorship increased the influence of the award and allowed it to grow. She said she was “saddened” by the negative response.The award’s format involves sending copies of the finalists’ books to colleges and universities across the province. Representatives from the schools meet in Quebec City in the spring, where they debate the merits of each title and select a winner. The winning author receives a $5,000 prize.Organizers said that with the suspension lifted, the nominated books will be sent to the 65 participating schools before the Christmas break.Jean Philippe Angers, The Canadian Press FILE – In this Oct. 23, 2018, file photo an Amazon logo is seen on the side of an Amazon Treasure Truck in Los Angeles.

By Staff ReporterIN A short statement yesterday, the Central Bank of Cyprus announced the two-day suspension of operations by the Federal Bank of the Middle East (FBME), which had been placed under administration last week after being deemed a “primary money laundering concern” by the US Treasury.But a late-night statement from the bank suggested that it was the victim of a hostile takeover and that the authorities seemed to have forgotten that it took part in a quarter million euro bond issue last year as part of the island’s bailout.“As a result (of the suspension), the FBME bank’s Cyprus branch will not execute any customer payment or other instructions during this time,” the CBC statement said.The CBC also announced that Dinos Christofides had been appointed special administrator to the branch on July 21.Last Friday, the central bank said it had taken control of FBME’s operations in Cyprus, following a report from the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network of the US Treasury describing the bank as a “primary money laundering concern”.FBME, headquartered in Tanzania, had denied the allegations, saying the US Treasury had compiled the report without its input.The US Treasury accused FBME, which though chartered in Tanzania operates primarily in Cyprus, of facilitating financial activity for transnational organised crime and Hezbollah.In an announcement issued late last night, FBME Bank said that “given that the Central Bank of Cyprus action has occurred at a time when the bank maintains exceptionally high solvency ratios, it is natural for FBME to question whether the CBC current action is motivated by concern for its depositors, or by the financial requirements of the CBC itself and the institutions it supervises.”“In the bank’s view, the CBC measure is a hostile takeover. FBME does not know who this action is intended to help but it is clear that it will not be to the benefit of FBME Bank, its depositors, its employees, or the Republics of Tanzania or Cyprus.”FBME Bank said that it is taking steps to engage with the US authorities regarding the report issued on July 15 by the US Department of the Treasury. “These measures will be managed through specialist legal advisors and independent forensic accountants,” it said in the announcement.“This measure is taken at a time when FBME’s financial position is sound and fully in line with all relevant capital adequacy and solvency requirements of the European Central Bank.
